Pride Restaurants

SarahKC Jun 19, 2008 09:51 AM

In honor of Pride, I was thinking of going to some excellent places that have owners or e. chefs or just leadership from the queer community. I thought it would be a nice way to honor how the Bay Area's food life is enhanced by the contributions of folks in this community.

Anyone have suggestions?

    There's been lots of flags and debate (including amongst the moderators and staff) about this thread, but it's a sincere question, and one we're going to allow.

    We'd like to ask that anyone who feels that the question is non-chowish please take that discussion to the Site Talk board. This thread should focus on where one can both eat great chow and support the SF Bay Area gay community.

      Good; glad to see it's back.

      While you were gone...this post had a reappearance in which Melanie Wong pointed out that there were so many restaurants that fit this description, it'd be simpler to name a few that won't. And Wolfe suggested that SarahKC might have bigger things to worry about than this given she's planning a wedding and a miracle fruit party. Nice to watch out Wolfe.

      And lastly, I recommend Citizen Cake (though I've never been there for a meal) and Orson (also haven't been but want to try.)

        Phew; I was feeling anti-Chow all weekend due to this post's removal.

        Wolfe -- I appreciate you looking out for me. I have decided to consolidate with a miracle fruit wedding at a restaurant with gay leadership.

          Jen (Do it for Zoi!) from Top Chef is still at Coco500, right?

            I think she left at the beginning of June. (via tablehopper: http://www.tablehopper.com/2008/05/ch...)

            Pamela Busch of Cav, Elizabeth Falkner of Citizen Cake, Citizen Cupcake, and Orson, and Traci des Jardin of Jardiniere, Acme Chophouse, and Mijita are all out lesbians. All of those except Mijita are generally well-regarded on this board.

            Simply visiting San Francisco and going out to eat supports the local gay community. You're usually not going to know your cooks' or servers' orientation, and if you guess you might be wrong.
